This guide is only for you if all other methods of troubleshooting did not work.
Sometimes we simply cannot get email to work and here are the steps that we take once we have exhuasted all other possibilities regarding an email log in issue.
- Log into webmail.brownrice.com - this will log you into the mailserver itself, and will determine if the issue is on our end.
- Check your spelling: It may sound like a rudimentary and rather un-advanced step to take, however, we have spent so much time on certain email issues only to determine the cause was a minor typo somewhere in your MX Records, Mailserver Address, Port Number or even in a SPF related TXT file.
- Leave the network: This will determine if the issue is within your network. Some instances, we've discovered the cause to be ISP related blocking of particular ports or in extreme cases, Mailserver blacklisting.
- Turn if off and on again. Okay you've tried this. But have you un-installed your software, rebooted, updated software, and re-installed? Have you tried using a different device? Maybe a different mail application?
